. a lot of people are stunned by it, including my first guest, senator john mccain who is making news right here about it. senator, welcome to you. >> thank you, piers, good to be back. >> you're all over the news again today, predominantly involving osama bin laden's son-in-law, sulaiman abu ghaith, you're not happy at all that he's been tried in a criminal court. why is that? >> i believe he's an enemy combatant and according to the rules of war, he should be tried as such and he should be in guantanamo. and one of the questions that should be asked, if that is not the case, and clearly it's not, how soon was he given his miranda rights, and if he has been, his good lawyers will tell him not to talk. we need intelligence. >> you said in your statement you issued this afternoon that you believe the american people did not want him to be tried in an american civilian criminal court. but i interviewed jim richards last night, a new york former fire chief, whose own son died on 9/11. and he said this. >> these people played politics, the republicans and democrats, with the trials of the

hopefully very volatile reaction back. >> i first knew john mccain in the house, he was a maverick. in the senate for years, he was a maverick. of everybody i know in the senate, i don't know anybody who had a better role of marching to his own drummer, but it doesn't hurt ted cruz and it doesn't hurt rand paul. it hurts john mccain. >> so the allegation is you're a bit of an old fuddy-duddy now, and the old maverick john mccain would have supported rand paul. >> well, you know, i am always intrigued by the fact that when i disagree with my own party leadership, like saying that donald rumsfeld ought to resign, we need to do the surge, then i'm a brave maverick. when i'm taking on others, then he's just an angry old man. i'll always do what i think is right. i think i understand national security. i have been involved in it in one way or another since i was 17, and i believe that the priorities that we were just talking about are the ones we should be spending 13 hours on. why isn't the united states of america helping the syrians who are being massacred as we speak? and the millio

limbaughs, but also the backlash he got from john mccain and lindsey graham, who said this isn't the type of position on national security our party should be taking. >> on the democratic side, we saw joe biden's schedule. seems to touch on all the groups you would need to touch on to come through a democratic primary. but this far out, we're in march of 2013, it seems to me that it's hillary, and that decision, and that's it. from the aides i've talked to, if she wants it, it's hers. no one can challenge her at this point. there's no barack obama coming around. >> that's why we'll probably not get an answer from her for a couple of years, which is why all the activity that we're seeing is happening on the republican side. not only was rand paul making waves, jeb bush. we saw marco rubio taking center stage giving his state of the union response to president obama. all these republicans seem to be doing little different things to at least dip their toes in the 2016 waters to prepare themself for something still three years away. >> the pressure on hillary is unbelievable. lastly, carl lev

no mistake. ' today on "studio b" senator john mccain said it was ludicrous for senator paul to even ask the question. >> no one is is going to be struck by a hell fire missile from a drone that is not in enemy combatant. i mean, that's just a fact. by the way the reason why we use hell fire missiles overseas and places like yemen is because we don't have the ability to capture them. we want to capture these people not kill them. >> it's an important question. it's sad that it came to this that we had to use pressure to get him to admit this. it's still a big victory for the people who said you know what? in america you do get a trial. senator paul says that senator mccain and lindsey graham on south carolina are on the wrong side of history. chuck hagel touched down in afghanistan for the first time since becomes pentagon chief. flew into kabul unannounced. he wanted to meet with commanders on the ground to better understand what's going on there. there are plenty of challenges ahead as nato hands over security to the afghans. he warned that america is still at war. focused on the missi

and from libertarians but against established republicans like john mccain and lindsey graham. we have former president george to be bush advisor. this is heavy-duty he takes a much criticism. >> is mr. poole was to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than full political stunts to fire up pressure of libertarian kids of the college dorm. gerri: come on. this is a surprising ran paul would object to the use of drums by the government. is this a serious political statement or stunt? >> i think he's a comparable we're so used to politicians and not for the state's people to stand up and now is there to mavericks' in washington? [laughter] gerri: there is a conflagration between the rotarians and old-fashioned republicans, a country club republicans loggerhead can they come together? >> we need to to win but senator paul also has yet to crisis. republican not there is no two-party committed don't run as individuals, a new centralized leadership, so they played the card of republican. gerri: comeeon. here is what john mccain said to the huffington post. he called them what go birds. >>
